Example text

Yet, the kingmakers found Ike's lack of qualifications no handicap because some of the kingmakers were trustees of Columbia University. In order to make sure they retained control of the 96-vote delegation at the 1952 Republican National Convention, the kingmakers persuaded Thomas E. Dewey to run for a third term as Governor of New York in 1950. By orders of Winthrop Aldrich of the Chase National (Rockefeller) Bank, Lieutenant Governor Joe R. Hanley, who was to have been the candidate, was bludgeoned into withdrawing.

It should be made perfectly clear that nothing in these pages is meant to cast any reflection whatsoever on Eisenhower.
